About Me

I am working as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Ender Konukoglu in Biomedical Image Computing (BMIC) group in the Computer Vision Lab. (CVL), ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

My research is focused around the general theme of developing Machine Learning algorithms with applications to Biomedical Image Analysis and Computer Vision. Lately, I am particularly interested in learning from limited annotations and making Machine Learning models trustworthy to be able to use them clinical settings. See research page for more details.

Short Bio

I joined ETH Zurich in June 2019. Prior to this, I was working as a Senior Research Engineer in ARM Ltd. where I was developing hardware-efficient image processing methods for improving image quality in mobile displays. In 2017, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Computer Science and Engineering department, Sabanci University, Turkey under the supervision of Prof. Mujdat Cetin. During my Ph.D., I worked on developing Bayesian methods for object segmentation by exploiting nonparametric shape priors.
